Another Cushion Cover Project Finished

You may remember that I had some squares left over from making a blanket for my lovely Miss L and I decided to use them to make a cushion.

Well here it is.

Patchwork CushionAnd as I still had a few squares to use I worked them in along with the stripes for the back.

Stripy Back

I originally started this project a few weeks ago when I discovered the Apache Tears pattern by Sara London which ended up being a cushion in it’s own right. It made sense to make them into a pair so the stripy back matches the apache tears cushion.

And to keep the pairing I used a similar pattern to make the flower buttons.

I am very happy with how this pair work together.

Apache Tears Free Pattern

Apache Tears

I have some squares left over from one of the girls blankets so I thought I would join them together and make them into a cushion cover.

But they would need a back…………., then I remembered a pattern that I found called Apache Tears that I have been wanting to try. Yes I think this is going to work just fine.

Thank you so much to Sarah for sharing this lovely pattern.
